"Patricia and her team were my photographers for both my outside engagement party and my intimate wedding in NYC. They’re extremely professional and most importantly enjoyable to work with."

Patricia and team care about capturing you and your loved ones at your best and they’re very open and flexible when it comes to making your vision come to life.
We will be staying in touch and ensure we use her and the team for future events!”

"creative and truly caring"

"Patricia delivered such an amazing experience with the photography session I booked with her to do my surprise proposal. As an out of state person I was already having trouble picking the right spot. Patricia helped me as much as she possibly could to find the perfect spot. Once the moment arrived she was in place and guided us around for amazing pictures spots and poses. She blew my fiancé and I away with the edited pictures we got from her a few weeks later. Would definitely recommend!"

"she blew us away with the pictures!"

"We had a phenomenal time working with Patricia for our engagement shoot. She went above and beyond to get the exact style we were looking for, and had great ideas and directions to help us feel comfortable and at ease since we’d never done a photo shoot before. We are delighted with the result, and can’t wait to work with her during our wedding."

"we had a phenomenal time!"

is elevated and emotive, focusing on capturing real moments and authentic emotions.  I provide a mix of detailed shots, environmental captures, candid moments, traditional bridal & family portraits.  I prefer backlighting my subjects with natural or artificial light if at all possible.  I favor the 85mm lens for beautiful portraits and a wide-lens to showcase the environment, layered stories, and fun party scenes.    

My editing ranges from natural to bright and crips, emphasizing highlights to produce true-to-life colors and vibrancy with touches of drama, whimsy, and joy.  Evening photos may have a moody, edgy feel, with a mix of flash on and off-camera.  I deliver a majority of candid shots alongside a blend of classically posed and editorial images.
